South Burnett Angler reels in victory
SOUTH Burnett angler Matthew Langford is back on home turf after claiming first place in round one of the Australian Bass Series at Lake St Clair in New South Wales last weekend.
It was Langford's first victory in the series, achieved by reeling in 10 bass for a combined weight of 8.08kg across the two-day event.
Langford said despite the ongoing closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, the fish were still biting.
"It was a great weekend of fishing down in NSW - there were plenty of fish caught and I managed to snag my first win for the year," Langford said.
"This series runs throughout the year and has currently been suspended, however it's great to start the year off with a win.
"The competition was run a little different than normal, with an online briefing and weigh-in to adhere to the social distancing guidelines."
